Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Old English timber "building, structure," in late Old English "building material, trees suitable for building," and "trees or woods in general," from Proto-Germanic *timran (cognates: Old Saxon timbar "a building, room," Old Frisian timber "wood, building," Old High German zimbar "timber, wooden dwelling, room," Old Norse timbr "timber," German Zimmer "room"), from PIE *deme- "to build," possibly from root *dem- "house, household" (source of Greek domos, Latin domus; see domestic (adj.)).\n
\nThe related Old English verb timbran, timbrian was the chief word for "to build" (compare Dutch timmeren, German zimmern). As a call of warning when a cut tree is about to fall, it is attested from 1912 in Canadian English. Timbers in the nautical slang sense (see shiver (v.2)) is from the specialized meaning "pieces of wood composing the frames of a ship's hull" (1748).\n

Historically also used in the plural, as in "ship's timbers". 4 (context archaic English) A certain quantity of fur skins (as of martens, ermines, sables, etc.) packed between boards; in some cases forty skins, in others one hundred and twenty. Also ''timmer'', ''timbre''. 5 (context firearms informal English) The wooden stock of a rifle or shotgun. vb. 1 (context transitive English) To fit with timbers. 2 (context falconry intransitive English) To light or land on a tree. 3 (context obsolete English) To make a nest. 4 To surmount as a timber does.
